Parents are important agents of behaviour change in a child, hence it is important that parents demonstrate and reinforce this behaviour at homes, because children learn by observing their elders. In view of this, the idea targets to ingrain the habits of handwashing among children as early as possible to effect a change in deep-rooted hygiene habits. 

“Inculcating handwashing behaviour at a very young age requires parents or caregivers to set a right example to their children and family members, thereby improving the health and economic well-being of the nation.” he said.
